Workshop 2:  New to Lean – Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Learn and do the basics

Objective: Understand the principles underlying lean thinking and a lean transformation for your organization.


Purpose
:
This is an introductory course to lean for managers and associates whose organization has started or is exploring starting a lean journey.  It provides a common baseline understanding of how lean works and the prerequisites for success.


Approach
:
This six-hour workshop uses the Shingo Model (i.e. Cultural enabler➔Continuous improvement➔Enterprise alignment➔Results) to build an understanding of lean, its underlying principles, and how lean can transform how an organization works.  Lectures, videos, and physical simulations are used to introduce concepts and tools. Liberating Structures are used to level the playing field and allow everyone the opportunity to engage with the materials and others for an effective learning experience.  The day ends with an assessment of how lean your organization is and where there are opportunities for improvement.


Target Audience
All managers and associates.  Knowledge of lean or six sigma is not required.  Participants already knowledgeable in lean can attend to build a common framework with their team or become facilitators.

Workshop 3: Lean Six Sigma Project Simulation – Wed, Nov 13, 2019

Experience an improvement project in one day

Objective: Learn to apply the lean six sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) approach to problem solving with your team.


Purpose
:
One way to view lean is as a problem solving methodology.  Teams of associates need a common framework and approach based on the scientific method to drive continuous improvement.  This course integrates lean and six sigma tools and practices into a common problem-solving framework.  It allows teams to practice the DMAIC process and develop confidence in its application.


Approach
:
Participants have fun and learn DMAIC problem solving while playing a computer simulation of a “zombie outbreak” in London.  The technology allows teams of 3-4 to test their tool knowledge and skills.  Each team builds a DMAIC storyboard and is evaluated on cost and time to solve the problem.


Target Audience
All managers and associates.  Some exposure to lean and six sigma is beneficial.  More experienced and knowledgeable participants can help those newer to their lean journeys.
